Quote from rwhitisissleAll I know is that this guy is asking to broken. Sure you can only activate the ability once per turn, but sometimes that's enough. I'd try to find some way of abusing him extremely early, probably in a U/G build like the original survival. Isn't there a functional Man o' War in M11?
Quote from cocbitYeah, this make sense for me as a valid argument to not being purple. If we examine the picture, all the surrounds are blue so that planet might be part of the background not a planet to be considered, in wich case it would be a big miss by the artist. But this sound reasonable.
I guess we have to wait and see what the card is.
Edit: Looking at the picture resized i realized that the ringed planet is not blue - It is colorless - The blue surrounding is what makes it seem blue as some of the fog is in front of the planet and the fog has that blue color.
Quote from eidolon232BBB is really hard to get and unlike Necropotence, Underworld Dreams doesn't win you the game but only pings your opponent by one every turn, since there aren't any draw 7 effects in your cube. Even if you get the Underworld Dreams + Puzzle Box combo going this isn't the instant kill, and you didn't influence the board the slightest for 2 full turns.
Teferi's Puzzle Box has been mentioned because (if you don't have the Dreams) it is 4 mana for a symmetrical effect that your opponent gets to use first.
If a card is never played, there is no reason to keep it in your cube. That is like replacing a card in your deck with a bad one, only because it has a nice picture.
Staying Power has a symmetric effect that is hard to keep track of when the game lasts longer.
Quote from wtwlf123I think you'll be surprised and displeased with how bad Crypt of Agadeem really is in any draft environment... even a cube.
Quote from vincentgoldWhy Sunder, but no Armageddon? I don't see one being particularly more "fun" than the other...
